Shot in the "backyard" a few days ago. Many different textures applied.

My backyard, Indiana 2009.



Should I post this or move on! That seemed to be the question I've been facing on this image; but not only this image, images of this genre in general. Ali or "Ali-1963" is by far one of the best on Flickr and her work has always been a source of inspiration. So - from the start it's a tough act to follow as they say. I've made a few of these and I've never been really happy with the result except for maybe a couple. Recently I shot a few of my backyard and I was bound and determined to smile if it took all night - which it almost did. I came back this morning after receiving an email from a different Ali, "Allison Ryder" that made me think about trying new things on flickr and seeing where it goes and the reluctance and reserve that's felt in the process. Well - that's what it's all about and what better venue than this group 'Slider Sunday"


I showed this to Marybeth and she twitched her nose and tilted her head (not good.) If no-one comments or favs this I'll understand and won't be put off - see we all come with a little bit of that fear and reluctance; but, I did what made me smile!


Happy Slider Sunday - HSS

Shot from backyard wooden pier Nikon D750 24-70 mm F5.6 1" ISO100

Shot this in the backyard of my mom's home. Nice having a few days off, even though didn't see my Grandkids, their whole family was sick. Posting this now, and should be able get caught up on Flickr when I shutdown for the evening. Thanks for all of the kind words and encouragement you all give. You make my photography even more fun. I'm looking forward to seeing your new images, always inspirational and a pleasure for me.


(new camera A9, and I think the time isn't set correctly, this was shot AM, not PM. Just corrected in my camera. Keeping one of my A7RII's, gave one to my daughter. Got this one for its fast focus and up to 20 shots per second. Got some ideas for that.)

A morning shot in my backyard....SOOC color!



It rained today.. well, it's been raining almost everyday for the past few days.. but this is from the archives.. as in 2011 archives..!!!! Back when I still shot regularly.. back when I liked shooting naturey stuff...


What has happened to me???

Shot this one on the Fourth of July. I like this one.

Zhanjiang, China – 2016, September 23

this is from March, in my backyard, up very high in my neighbor's Pecan tree. This is active breeding and nesting time, and we have great old trees here in Orlando, so lots of nests and eggs and babies. So ... unfortunately ... the hawks are very active too.


A beautiful Red-shouldered Hawk gave me a minute or two to get my camera. Not the best shots, but I had fun painting them.

We didn't have much snow this winter so I had to get in a few shots from the last blast of snow we had last week. The squirrels weren't really co-operating so I didn't get the shot I wanted, but this is one the better ones I took.

Beautiful day, couldn't pass up being outside. No theme, just shots of flowers and birbs

This too, is a re-process of an earlier shot.


In case you're wondering, I'm going to submit five images to Yellow Korner, a chain of photo galleries in, of all places, The Short Hills Mall. (And other big cities around the world).


They ... don't like subtlety. So if all goes well, you, my original fans, will be able say "I liked Steve Fretz's early work, before he went all commercial."

Beautiful day, couldn't pass up being outside. No theme, just shots of flowers and birbs

Another shot from the backyard of our friends house, where we stayed on New Years Eve.

Shot in my backyard during Summer.

This is not the first time I am posting my sunroom window shot, nor it is going to be the last one. I just love the light...late afternoon hours are the best. HBW!

Shot this tonight at 9pm- iso 6400! I never do that! I just really loved the bokeh.( Press L, looks better!)


It is HOT as...well you get the picture!!

AC is on, and looking for cool things to do!!


Hugs and kisses Flickr. xoxo

The clouds rolled in late today so a quick walk outside and I got the shot. Then I decided it was about time for a B&W.

It was a bit foggy today but I ventured out to the back of our property to get this shot... I just wanted to let you know that I have to be careful not to strain my eye too much so as a result I am not on flickr very much this week. Thanks for understanding!!

The dragonflies have been plentiful in North Texas this summer due to the large amount of rain we've been having....and this fellow is sitting on top of a piece of discarded metal rod that I was using to brace a new tree we've planted.


This is a handheld shot taken with a Nikon D80 coupled with a Nikkor 18-200mm VR (vibration reduction) lens.....

Backyard find. Testing out Fujifilm's new in-camera grain setting. Shot with Fujifilm XPro2 and 60mm f2.4 macro lens in Classic Chrome, grain setting: weak.



Quick Panorama shot taken from my backyard balcony

Eastern Phoebe

Swansea, Massachusetts


Yesterday's Nor'easter had me looking back into the warm weather archives. Every spring a pair of Eastern Phoebes makes a nest on a small (disconnected) alarm box tucked up under the eave of the north end of our house. This year they started to land on the Paperbark Maple we planted just outside a nearby window, granting the perfect opportunity for a close and clear shot from a convenient blind. Mom (or Dad?) is keeping one eye on the nest here.

Shot this in my backyard after we got home from the park.

Backyard shot today.

Very active Spring in our backyard! The jelly feeder needs filling daily. Seems as though all the birds enjoy it. These shots are all taken from inside through our deck door window.





Monarch caterpillar in its fifth stage of development. The first comment below the image is another shot of the caterpillar.


The caterpillar goes through five major, distinct stages of growth and after each one, it molts. Each caterpillar, or instar, that molts is larger than the previous as it eats and store energy in the form of fat and nutrients to carry it through the nonfeeding pupal stage. 5th instar with the white spots visible on the prolegs.


The first instar caterpillar that emerges out of the egg is pale green and translucent. It lacks banding coloration or tentacles. The larvae or caterpillar eats its egg case and begins to feed on milkweed. It is during this stage of growth that the caterpillar begins to sequester cardenolides. The circular motion a caterpillar uses while eating milkweed prevents the flow of latex that could entrap it.


The second instar larva develops a characteristic pattern of white, yellow and black transverse bands. It is no longer translucent but is covered in short setae. Pairs of black tentacles (stinkhorns) begin to grow. One pair grows on the thorax and another pair on the abdomen.


The third instar larva has more distinct bands and the two pairs of tentacles become longer. Legs on the thorax differentiate into a smaller pair near the head and larger pairs further back. These third stage caterpillars began to eat along the leaf edges.


The fourth instar has a different banding pattern. It develops white spots on the prolegs near the back of the caterpillar.


The fifth instar larva has a more complex banding pattern and white dots on the prolegs, with front legs that are small and very close to the head.


A couple shots from the back yard

Shot this in my backyard the other day, These turkeys are everywhere.

Happy New Year everybody! Sorry for not being around much lately but life has been a little complicated.

Had Mr Hawk visiting my backyard today and got some shots thru the window. He was sitting on my frozen water garden ;-) Does anybody know the correct ID ?

I will try my best to make my way around to everybody's photostream in the next few days!

Thank you for stopping by - take care!!

After laying in the snow for an hour and a half waiting for this guy, he ran out a few feet from me. I was too low on the ground and most shots couldn't even see the feet due to the angle. But, it did provide some excellent opportunities for portrait shots!


Harford County


We had unseasonably warm weather on Oct 14th (22C), and the ladybugs were practically swarming in the backyard!


Tamron SP Di 90mm F/2.8 (272E) plus Raynox MSN-202 (and off-camera Yongnuo YN-560 III, as usual). First shots with the 202 - very powerful! This must have been a tad closer than infinity on the lens' focus scale.

While sitting out on my backyard patio trying to figure out how some Ninja Squirrels were getting into my bird feeders, I noticed some fluttering between branches near my small pond. As took a closer look I couldn't believe my eyes...WARBLERS!!!! Not quite sure why they paid a visit as I am in the middle of a large metropolitan city...but thankful they did... I only managed to get limited snaps with my camera as I wasn't properly prepared...and spent the next several days attempting to get some some decent shots with these uncooperative little guys...Hopefully Ill have more to come as Ive seen 10 different species so far...

..I think I caught "Warbler Fever"! :>)

A Panoramic Scene From Backyard in America's Finest City

HDR and 13 vertical shots stiched


:copyright: 2015 Ma'an Muhsin Photography

Stacked several photos in PS to get this shot.

These are the trees I see from my backyard. Because I have decided to start (notice I didn't say finish:) a 365 this year, I figure these trees will be making a regular appearance in my photostream. I usually take a shot of them sometime during the day as my backup shot for the day. This was an unused backup from January 1. My chosen shot of that day was a different shot of the same trees:)
